13 PRKFACK In piescnting this brief record of OUR ANCESTORS to the line, T do so be cause of my intense* interest in seeing family records, preserved for posterity. 1 have spent several years at this search in. jr and really have been continuous at it. The expense has been heavy, been a satisfaction to me as I and the real office work immense. But there has gradually uncovered the past records of our an- Lvstors. There has not in all this search, heen a single point in their lives that I was ashamed of, not in the least, while on the other hand, 1 have become better ac quainted with them, and now have a greater respect for every one of them. It ha,s been said that, * We are the heirs of the ages, and we surely ought to be proud of every one of our ancestors, for what they have bequeathed to us, in their sincere upright lives. They were all i burners of the highest type, and 1 have been appalled all the way along, to observe what they have suffered that we may enjoy what we do today In most all the lines we have those who were soldiers or were in some way connected with the Revolutionary War, for American independence. This is a great honor bequeathed to us. Several lines have been proven up. thus enabling the descemlents to join either the Daughters or the Sons of the American Revolution. 1 am sorry to soy that on account of the heavy expense, I am unable to have published a full and ccmlete history cf the family though I have an immense amount of material that is very interesting, and knowing that there are manj' chances to lose what we have, therefore, I am presenting a brief record. I know that even this will in time to come, he even priceless to yet unicorn generations, for as the years pass it l»ecomes harder to collect the away hack records. Please let me drop a word here to the head of families, that is to talk with your children about your ancestors, and even rec-tord in the family Bible such facts as you possess, and thus hand down records that in after years, when you are gone, that it will he impossible to secure. To my shame, in my own life time, around forty years ago I could have se cured ficrn the lips of the living, what I have searched for and spent money to have genealogists hunt for. and yet only a trivial hit was secured. 1 want to thank those who have helped in collecting what we here present, and am very sorry that so many who ought to have boon interested, were very careless and ignored our repeated requests for help in collecting the family record. I have been very much pained at the suggestion of many bo whom I have asked their eo-operation, that I was doing this for either some hidden estate, or to make money out of the sales of a book. It is common knowledge that there never was a cent made out of a family re cord, because of the limited number published and such a few who could afford to buy them at a cost.of $5.00 to $10.00 each. We again say we are glad to present this as our contribution, and trust that it will be received as such and treasured. Again we bid you all a good bye.

15 THE HANSON FAMILY By Homer Filer. Topeka, Kansas, The writer, Ilcmer Eiler, of Topeka. Kansas, makes this statement for this very brief record of the Hanson family. T have a great amount of Ilanson material that it would take a year or so to work up into a volume, but knowing the frailties cf human life, that we are here today and tomorrow gone, that it would he a great loss to the entire family if this was not preserved in a very?»rief form. I have taken the time to gather the main facts, in the hope that in the future there may arise seine Ilanson his torian who will avail himself of what has been recorded here. First, before starting on this brief record of the Ilanson lines, due credit must be given to Mr. Raymond C. Hansen of Saxman. Kansas. (1928) for his seven years of devotion to gathering the various family lines, which tire the basis of this record. Then, social credit must l/e given to a James Ilanson,the son of Conrad, the grandson of our John, the Revolutionary soldier for really the first attempt to record the history of the Ilanson family. This James Ilanson. whom I knew very well in my young manhood, says that in 1S7G, while the celebration of the (Vntenial of the. Declaration of Independence was going on, the thought, occurred to him to leave to posterity the family history. This lie did. and the same has been preserved among liis descendents. and finally Martin Hanson. a brother tc James, was successful in getting a copy of the same, and presented it to Raymond! C. Hanson, who was enthused to continue the search fer additional records. Then reacting what Raymond had gathered together so successfully., the writer then, because he was related in a like measure to the Hanson line, began ro add what he could by a systematic search for additional records. The greatest find I was able to make was the estate papers as recorded in Monroe County. Inch, which gave valuable information at great length, and set tled many traditions. Then I was amo to locate scores of descendents of the line in Indiana. Virginia, Iowa and elsewhere. Then the satisfactory settlement as to who was the wife of our ancestor. John Ilanson. Then the entire relation ship existing between that family and the May family of Kentucky and Illinois. lit esc' will all be treated more fully in their respective places. The name Tlnns:n is no doubt English, notwithstanding some writers pre fer to go to a Swedish origin, that name even today, of course, being quite com mon in that nation. Possibly away back to seme remote period, it may have or iginated in Sweden, where a son was. known as the son of Hans, or to put it prcperly, Hans son, or Ilanson. Be that as it may there is abundant history to show them as a numerous English line. Just one notaton here to show licw the name Han-<«n is connected even with the Plymouth Colony. It is recorded in all histories of the Pilgrim Fathers, the record of our Wil liam I radfod, the second governor of the Plymouth Colony, that his mother's name was Alice Hanson, and by the way. a coincident, his wife s maiden name was Dorothy May. ] mention this because the.may and Ilanson lims are sc* inter married. By the way *»f digression for a sad hist ri*-al fact, this Porotl v < May > Bradford was the victim cf The FIRST tragedy of I hymouth. She fell overboard from the Mayflower just on'1 week before landing, and was drowned in the harbor History further records that the Ilanson and May families lived it? the " ame rmighbrrhood in England during the time before the birth or Dorothy and her ishand. William Bradford. In fact, the parents of each ol these two, we find.

16 .

17 THE HANSON FAMILY are flee in? from England during the days of religious persecution, to a place near Leydan. Holland. In fact Dorothy May was born there. and married there. as the records show. It was here that they set sail to England to join the May flower, Mr. Raymond Ilanson starts out in his history by quoting from James Manson's record that our American ancestor was a John Hanson, wlicm we shall call John 1st. Says he was bom in Ireland but educated in England and in fact was raised in England, but married a woman of Irish ancestry, and very soon after migrated to America and seems to have entered this country via Maryland. He gives as a date and that seven sons were horn to this couple. Fixing the date of our direct ancestor. John the 2nd, as 17(10 and his birth place in Green brier County, now in "West Virginia, to which place the family had removed. Xot criticising our relative. James, hut I am inclined to think the date of 1750 for coming t<> this coutry and that seven sons were horn up to and including our John, given as the youngest, that date would have to he corrected. Anyway, we arc di rectly interested in our John the 2nd, and the date 1700 Pears out every ether phase of his life so far as 1 have sea relied. I note that our James mentions Greenbrier county as the place of settlement of our Hanson family. Iam inclined to think that, to say Greenbrier COUN TRY w ould be more likely, for there was no such a county before 1700, and after diligent search 1 find that the whole region west of the Blue Ridge range of mountains was known as the Greenbrier Country to which history floes record that a wonderful immigration took place from eastern Maryland about that time I have 'had the official-records of that county and several counties even around it searched for any kind of a record, such as marriages, tax lists, deeds and wills, hut not a single one, and so I am at a loss to know where next to go. You must remember that the Greenbrier Gcuntry took in an immense tract of country, even reaching up into all of Southwestern Pennsylvania. Name of the seven sons are net fully given, only four by James in his record, namely William, James. Samuel and John. 2nd. 1 have added one more, named Joseph, through West Virginia deseendents. 1 am pleased to state that I have found scores of deseendents of James, who are located in Indiana, mostly in Monroe county. These will Ikj spoken of later in their proper place. We next hear of cur ancestor, John 2nd. as a Revolutionary War soldier. ITis record is on tile in the archives in Washington. I). C.. and roads as follows: "The records cf this office (War Dept.) show that our J:hn Hanson served as a private in Captain Rowland Madison s company, 12th Vu. Reg., commanded by Col. James Wood, Revolutionary War. Ills name first appears on a compary pay roll for the month of June dated Aug. 5, with remark Appointed Dec. 2b, 177(5. And it last appears on a company r:ll for the month of November. 177b, dated at Seeon River, near Newark. N. J Dec b. with remark: Enlisted Dec. 23, for three years. No further information relative to this soldier lias been found on the records of this office. Signed, II. I*. McCann, by Adjt. Commander. Dated at Washington Nov. 1, I arn pleased to state here that there are several of the Hanson line who are members of the Daughters, and Sons of the American Revolutionary Societies upon this record and it is available to the entire line. Those at present who have joined are: Mrs. Nora Ilauscliiidt of Santa Cruz, Calif., National Number D. A. R Mrs. Onn E. Sanders of Seattle, Wash.. National Number D. A. It. 21S088; Raymonl C.

19 THE HANSON FAMILY tional Number 8. A. K : Whittier I,. Hanson of New York. National Num ber 8. A. R. 3S135: Homer Filer of Topeka. Kansas. National No. S. A. II The next event in the record of our ancestor John Hanson, is his marriage to Mary Magdalena Walls around 1782 to 17N4. as I am able to place it. accord ing to events in his family, rnfortunately. as stated, 1 have not been aide to find the marriage record but am still at it and will continue. 1 might say hero that 1 am deeply impressed that our John Hanson was mar ried in that part of Greenbrier Country in southwestern Pennsylvania, for I have traced a Wall, cr Walls, family to that section and hope later to find some records there. Anyway we have unbounded testimony that Mary Magdalena Walls was his wife. There has been quite a bit of controversy about this, as several had at the beginnig of the search for family reeords.thought that Savilla Ilawkes. but changed for some reason to Hanks, was the wife of our John Hanson, the Revolutionary sober. Not a bit cf record.only a tradition that she belonged to our John, while as a matter of fact such a person was the wife of a brother of our John, named James aid this James is the ancestor of the Indiana line, which is very numerous. The actual records that we have that Mary Magdalena Walls was the wife cf our John is. first, that a Mps. Martha 8. Baker of Sullivan, Mo., in 1920 wrote me that her grandmother wrote :n a piece of paper in her possession, that Mary Mag dalena Walls was the wife of our.john Ilanson. That was good enough in itself. Then this grain.mother, who is a descendent of our John, also left a reccrd stating that Savilla Hanks was the wife of James and that a Savilla Tuckwiller was the wife of Wiliam Hanson (a brother of our John) and gives the date of March 3, for William s marriage. But strong additional records still follow, for insl,«a-e. we have the record of the old family Bible of a John Hanson, of Tower Hill. Ill., who is a sou of Con rad. and he. Ccnrad. is a son of our John, and in that Bible it says: Mary M. (Walls) Hanson, my grandmother, died March , aged 79 years, and 7.lays, and is buried in the cemetery north of Tower Ilili, Ill. Then the finding of this grave and a stone jn a good state of preservation, corroborating this Bible record. is final evidence. I have a picture of this stone and have, distributed copies to several that it may by preserved, and a picture of same is in the front of this book. I also find the name Savilla very often in the James descendents. but NOT ONCE in the descendents of our John. James Hanson our first historian says that soon after the marriage of his grandfather, our Jchn Hanson, that he rein:veil to the Blue Ridge Moutains in the extreme northwest corner of N. Caroline which at that rime was i vast wilder ness. with roving bands of Indians and wild animals of every kind. Here if appears.all five of the children were born. Wish 1 had space to pic ture children born amid such surroundings and under such circumstances, and thee realize that these are our direct ancestors, and we are proud of them. They grew up in a home, no doubt, of love and loyal devotion to duty. The next we hear in a general way of our J :hn. is liisremcval to Claihmr. r.g County, Tenn.. where they lived only for a short time. Before I go too far I want to give my opinion about the births of the five children, and am basing such on their ordt r of marriage, and the two dates w<* actually know. First, I am fully convinced that the first horn was Mary Catharine Hanson and horn about 1789, for this reason: We know that it was always customary io name the first Porn, if a bov, after its father, and if a girl, after its mother. "*e know Mary was the name of the mother. Then wo know that thi> Mary, a! m: (

20 '

21 ft r THE HANSON FAMILY 1S02. became the wife of a John May, ami that thoy lived in Floyd county, Ky. and that three children were horn to them, for the estate records so state that three children of Mary C. (Hanson) May, who was know as Caty, are men tioned in the settlement». l* the estate of our John Hanson in Indiana. For the seond child I place Conrad, and we have his tombstone located near that cf his mother north cf 'lower Hill, Ill., in Middlesworfli graveyard, which reads: Died April 13, aged 04 years, 5 months, 4 days, which makes him born Nov. 11, J7S8. For the third child I place John, because I have his record as a soldier if the war of 1812, and place his birth at about 1790, and we call him.john the 3rd For the fourth child 1 place Elizabeth because she became the second wife of our John May, her brother-in-law, after the death of Mary, about ISOS, and we know this marriage took place in 1S09, and to put her birth at around 1792 is not out of place, which would make her 17 years old at marriage. (This Elizabeth (Hanson) May is my direct ancestress in the Munson line.) For the fifth child 1 place Rebecca for her descendents in Indiana give as a date 1795 to She married a first cousin, a John, the son of James, her un cle. Also the John above, the third child, married his first cousin. Nancy, the daughter of William, his uncle. That was common ir> early time. It appears that the residence in Tennessee took place during the war of because the records show that John J<r.. son of our John, enlisted from there. Then we have a very tine patriotic tradition carried down in the family and pre served by a George Hanson of Lawrence, Kansas, that our ancestor John Hansen, being toe old for actual service in that war, and being an experienced powder maker, hied himself with other friends to the celebrated Indian cave known even to this day as Nick-a-Jack, and there made that necessary article of war for the army under General Jackscn at New Orleans. It is given in Raymond Hanson s record that Conrad. h>s ancestor, was also in the war of and there is no doubt of it. but I failed to find liis name on the records, but that is not strange, for thousands wvre in that war who were net on lb1' pay roll the same as in the Revolutionary War. % Wo next find our ancestor John Hanson in Estili County. Kentucky, during the closing days of the war of In fact we know that Ocnrad the son was there ra Estili County, Ky. in 1810 for the first born of Conrad, namely James the Historian was born there January 15, It must have been very shortly after this that our John and family again re moved, this time to Monrce County, Ind., for we have a record of his death in the settlement of his estate there, which places his death in 1818 and he is buried there Unfortunately I have not been able to get the IIan>ou lines, in that section of Indiana, interested enough to locate it. In fact I can state right here, that of the hundreds of letters I have written only a fraction were answered. I have been informed that there is a Hanson burial ground known as ToddVh in Polk Township, in Monroe County, Ind. Some day I hope to make a personal investigation. You would be surprised dear reader. ;;t the number of the folks who seemed to think that I was after some CRl-yCP estate and would grab tin whole tiling, much to my utter disgust of their ignorance. We- know that our John Hanson was accompanied by his wife Mary and two sons. Conrad and John and one daughter Rebecca. Mary (May) having died in 1808 in Floyd County. Ky. and Elizab-rh at this time was the second wife of John May ami was still living in Floyd County, Ky. About 1830 or possibly 1832, the widow (our Mary M. Hanson, the wife of cur John.) accompanied her son Conrad to near Tower Hill, Ill. v.^htre sue died as stated on March 7,

Ohio. I have written a history of the George family but do not deem it wist* to enter same here, as too lengthy. Betsy lived to a jrreat jure jind is buried in Johnson'countv near East Point. Ky.

25 THE HANSON FAMILY place ill Tennessee or in Instill County. Ky.. is slightly in doubt. but from all ap pearance it took place in Tennessee where the parents of Catharine lived, al though it is said that the Ilanson and Slmlts families both moved at the same time to Kentucky. Catharine Slmlts was the child of Jacob and Mary Shults and was born near the town of Taswell, Claibourne County. Term, m Feb *. She died in Severy, Kansas, Jan *3, where she had been making her home with her son Martin llanscn.. To Conrad Hanson and wifecatheiine were born twelve children.as follows: Three in Estill County. Ky.. as follows: Janies. Elizabeth and Andrew. Five in Monroe County, Ind.. Jacob. Jordon, Mary Ann. John and Sarah. The remaining four near Tower Hill, 111., in the Knobbs settlement. Mila, Isaac. Martin and George. It was at the home of Conrad that his mother. Mary Magdalena (Walls) Hansen. spent her declining years. Wonderful family traditions have come down to us. concernin': this very remarkable pioneer woman. She practiced mid-wifery and was so successful that demands were made upon her. taxing to the utmost her strength. We are pleased to place a picture of her grave stone in the front of this book. We will now take up each of these twelve children, giving what records have been obtained. JAMES HAN SOX, the first child of Conrad and wife, was born in Estill Co.. Ky.

(8) SARAH (IIANSON; LOOKENBILL. the eighth child of Conrad and Catharine his wife, is listed by James Hanson, the historian, as the last child that was born in Monroe County. Irak And as James gives an exact date for re moval from Indiana to Shelby Ciunty. Ill., as October, 1833, I am inclined to think that her birth must have occurred around 1S31 cr Also while here mention that there must be an error in placing the children of Conrad as above given in rotation of birth, because 1 see that John Hanson is given as 1821 as the seventh child, and then Sarah, the last, just l»efore their removal in 1833, a difference of eleven years. Of course errors will creep into all family records, and must be overlooked. No record is given of Sarah, only that her husband was a soldier in the Civil War and is supposed to be listed as among the missing ai the battle of Gettys burg. Raymond records that Sarah died in Illinois.

37 THE HANSON FAMILY But am pleased tc add considerably to several, especially that of Mary, the sister of Conrad, because they are so closely related to the May family. Then that of Elizabeth Ilanson. the sister of Conrad. I am pleased to give an extended account because she is my great-grandmother. Then the record of John and Kebecca Hanson, the other two children of our John the Revolutionary soldier, 1 am pleased to give a very good record because of the finding of the estate records of our John Hanson, the Revolutionary Soldier, in Indiana, and then because of considerable correspondence with descendants still living in Indiana. I trust that those who shall receive copies of this will treat it at a sacred trust to hand down to even yet unborn generations. 1 will now proceed to give a brief record of the next in line. RECORD OF JOHN HANSON, JR. (3) JOHN HANSON. Jr., the third son of our John. Sr. and his wife. Mary Magdalena Walls, and as stated at the begining. I am placing him as the third child. 1 am placing his birth around 171)0, tc fit in with others whom we know of their birth, and then because he was in the war of 1S12, and this adds to if. We know he followed his father to Indiana, and it appears that he was a married there, to his cousin Nancy, the daughter of our William Ilanson. who was a brother to our John. I might say here that the estate papers bear out the fact of John and family. Tc John, Jr., and wife Nancy there are no dates of marriage, or her birth, but we have a short record of five children, as follows (But not In order of birth) : (a) John. Jr., no other record, (b) Levi; no other record, (c) Sabbitha, and a Mrs. Martha S. Baker, who now (102>H lives at Sullivan. Mo. and who is a descendent of Sabbitha, states that Sabbitha, the grandmother of Mrs. Baker, who gave the information that the wife of our John Hanson, the Revolutionary sol dier, was Mary Magdalena Walls, and of German nationality. Sabbitha married Felix Milter in Indiana Monroe County. Two children are given. David Miller, and he is the father cf Mrs. Martha S. Baker at Sullivan. The other child is a daughter named Susan, who married a Mr. Alsup. This is all the record I have of Sabbitha. (d) Eliza Hanson, given as the fourth child of John. Jr., anti Nancy, also of Indiana. Mrs. Baker gives as her date of birth as 1S30. and death as Als^o gives her husband s name as Wesley Deekard, and two children mentioned, as fol lows : (a) Florence Deekard, who also married a distant cousin by the same name, and now (1027) lives at Bedford. Ind. (b) The second child was named Mack, and lives in Missouri. No more record. (e) Daniel Hanson, the fifth child of John Jr. and Nancy, and he has a live descendent, a son also named Daniel. Jr., horn July , and address is at Harrodsburg, Ind. Other children of Daniel. Sr. are. Jesse, John,William, Edward, Levi and Gorman. (This end the ecord of John Hanson, Jr., and Nancy, his wife.) s THE RECORD OF ELIZABETH HANSON (I) ELIZABETH (HANSON) MAY. the 4th child as I place it. of John and Mary Magdalena Walls his wife, was horn from what traditions have it, in the extreme northwestern part of North Carolina where it appears nil the family were born. For a date we are fixing it at around 1702 or i>ossibly Here -he was raised and married, to John May her brother-in-law who had married her sister Mary, no doubt the eldest child of John Ilanson and wife. There is a beautiful story connected with the marriage of Elizabeth, and

38 - ' *,.

39 THE HANSON FAMILY I like to dwell upon all the unusual qualities of Elizabeth, because she is my own great-grandmother. It appears that after the death of Mary, in Floyd County, Ky. about ISOS, leaving three small children, that John May the husband-father took them to his father-in-law's home for the family to look after, while he returned to his home in Floyd County, Ky. which was not far as.an examination of the map. In about a year he made one trip that we know of, for the purpose of re lieving the Hanson family of taking care of the children. The story goes, that it was early fyll and that John May and Elizabeth were picking apples, and also discussing the plan «cf taking the children away, because Elizbeth and her mother Mary especially had taken such a fancy to them. We do not know what the plans of John May were, lmt he finally remarked to Elizabeth. Well Elizabeth there is only one way to solve this problem, as you are so devotedly attached to the children, and that is to become their step-mother. Elizabeth at once, sc the story goes, made a hurried trip to the house and told her mother what John May had said. The mother with great tact, said. Well Eliza beth you could never do better than to take John May at his word, for he is a good man. And they were married very shortly afterwards and John May. and Elizabeth and three children, who were all ready with their aunt, returned to the Floyd County, Ky. home, where she took up the unfinished task of her sister Mary. She not only took care and raised the three of Mary s but "'as the mother of elev en of her own. - This story comes to us fr:m my grandmother Catharine (May) Sharrock, the eighth child of Elizabeth, and of course was told her by members of their own family if not really by Elizabeth herself. This event happened in the early fall of The home of John May was on the banks of the Big Sandy River, about a mile below the present town of Prestonburg. History tells us that the spot is the site of an old Indian village. IIerf.* ten of the eleven children were horn. I have a picture of this site and can not heip but dwell upon the vision cf imagining all those children playing near the hanks of that stream, enjoying the happiest moments of their lives, not dreaming what was in store for each of them, when they were to launch out as pioneers on other parts and follow the same hard struggle fer existence, as their parents had clone.. The children as we stated of Mary, who were now cf the household of her sis ter Elizabeth were: John Jr., Elizabeth (Betsy), and Samuel. Those of Elizal>eth's were: Cornelius, born 1S10: Thomas, born 1812: Mary, born 1814; Rebecca, born 1810; Nancy, born 1817:.Teptha, born 1820; Alfred, born 1821: Catharine, hers 1823: Lafayette, born 1S25: Jane, born 1827: (Then the Eleventh one born in ShelPy County, Jackson, born 1830.) Here enters the same story into the life of Elizabeth and John May as has been shown in other members of the Hansen family, that intense hatred for the SLAVERY problem that was. as you know in the 20\s becoming a burning question all over the southland. It eventually drove John Hansen and all his family out of Tennessee and Ky. into Indiana. It caused John May and wife Elizabeth to gather together their own family of little ones and move northward, landing in Shelby County, where John Jr. May the oldest child of Mary, who had been raised by Elizabeth, had removed, no doubt, for the same reasen. I have told you the story of this John May Jr. in the May History. It was in the early spring time of 1830 when John May set out with all his family and earthly belongings, and traveled in pionei r fashion.. experiencing all of the struggles of such a journey through wilderness, forests, fording turbulent streams, until ho found bis new home near Shell'yville. Ills. No pen can portray % the hardships cf such a journey with such a large family, from thr old«boy 17

40 ,. v

41 THE IIANSON FAMILY named Cornelius aged twenty years, to the baby Jane aged three years.' Tjhen to add to this the fact that Elizabeth who was to beeome a mother in Sept, was more than physical strength could endure, and one is not surprised that when the time came for her delivery, she failed to pass safely through the ordeal and we have the second great calamity for John May and the first one for the family. So in a few weeks after the birth of her eleventh child, named Jackson aiul born Sept Elizabeth, as the poet hath said, Gathered the mantle of her drapery about her and lay down to pleasant dreams. She was buried on the high bank of the Okaw River, a stream that runs by the eastern edge of Shelbyville. I want to testify here, for the benefit of future generations, that 1 have vis ited her grave in my teen age, anil very distinctly remember of my mother lead ing the way and standing bef:re a stone and remarked to me. Here lies my grand mother, Elizal/eth May. But what a sad picture to behold in after yearsv to know that the C. & E. 1. R. R. cut their right of way through the copter of this sacred spot, and our Greatmotlur's grave along with others was ruthlessly scraped out as so much rubbish, to make way for commercialism. So closed the life of cur Elizabeth (Hanson) May. I wish I had time and was not handicapped for space, to make such a brief record of this family, as I have had to do with all these records, and then dwell upon some of the characteristics of to me this very unusual woman, as afterwards shown in her posterity. I am asking each one of her posterity to accasionally pause, and do homagj to Elizabeth, our ancestress who no doubt possessed lovely characteristics as many family traditions record. Right here 1 want to stop and give my version as to the date of the death of our Elizabeth, while 1 have given it as late in the fall of 1830 as per above noted. This is given because of the statement and belief of a living granddaughter, Mrs. Amanda (Sharrock) Brant the daughter of Catharine (May) Sharrock. It appears that our Grandmother Catharine sharrock states that her mother (Eliza beth) told the family of a presentment shcrtly after the birth of Jackson, that she was going to die. And from what Catharine remembers this death did take phme not long after the birth cf the baby. This has been handed down to Mrs. Brant by her mother and of course is to l>e taken into consderation. Here is the ether story that I am inclined to think more probable and then not denying even the presentment -cf Elizabeth. In a History of Shelby County published in 1800, there is a biography there on page 048 of our ancestor John Sharrock the husband of this Catharine. lie says The May family emigrated from Kentucky to Shelby County, Ills, about 1831, and the following year (1832) Mrs. May (Elizalndh) died. Now then there is also an error there, for we know that Jackson was born Sept as we have been tcld. near Shelbyville, Ills., so there you see is a discrepancy of a year. But to make allowance for that year then it might he that instead of Elizabeth dying socn after Jackson s birth, she may have died nearer the spring of Anyway there is not much difference, perhaps only a few months at the longest. After the death of the wife. John May moved to the Abbott Homestead about three miles northeast cf Tower Hill, and was afterwards known as the May homestead. Here he remained only a few years as the girls began to many off. and then about 1840 when several removed to Texas and Oregon he went to live with his daughter Catharine Sharrock. where he died Nov. 22, 1811), and is buried in the Middlesworth graveyard, a mile north of Tower Hill, 111.

They are all dead, Ileaden tlie last one dying in (11) JACKSON MAY, the last child of Elizabeth (Hanson) May was the only one net born in Floyd County, Ky., as he was born not long after John May moved his family to Shelby couunty. Ill. Jackson was born Sept. 30, 1S30 and died in 1008 and is buried in Prmeeville. Ore. Married to Marry A. CTonk in Clackamas County. Ore. and to them were horn six children: John, Lafayette, William (only one alive, lives at Salem, Ore.) George, Elizabeth, and Stephen This ends the record of Elizabeth (Hanson) May s family, and her own per sonal history is found at the begining of her record. RECORD OF REBECCA (HANSON) HANSON (5) REBECCA (HANSON) HANSON, the fifth child as I place it of our John Hanson and his wife Mary Magdalena (Walls) Hanson, was horn where I feel that all the rest of the children were b:rn. in the Northwest corner of North Carolina. We can follow her with her parents to Monroe County, Ind. where she was married, lived and died. Her doscendents place her birth at 171)7 and death at 1870 In Monroe county, Ind. She was married tc her first cousin John Hanson the son of James and this James is a brother to our John. The date of birth of this John is given as.i860 and his death at There are eight children riven under this union, as follows: (Not order of birth). (1) Savilla Hanson the child of Rebecca anu John. Given as,she married a Mr. Ab rahams. A Mrs. Rel**cca (Parnell) of Bloomington, Ind. is given as a daughter of this Savilla, and she was alive in 11)26. I wish to call your attention to the name SAVILLA. as here given, and is GOOD evidence that Savilla Hawkes or Hanks, was the wife of this JAMES and N'OT of our John. I am perfectly satisfied that here is where this Savilla belongs, and can see why they got is mixed, because of the intermarrying of coudns. (2) James Hanson, the ><s.onii child of Rebecca. Only record is of several of bis children. a< follows: Sarah and she married a Mr..Deckanl, and a son Thom* as Deckard now (1927) lives at Nashville, Ind. (Might mention the name Deekard as one intermarrying between several families) (b) Lucy Ann. R) James.;r. an

47 TIIH HANSON FAMILY (il).t'din, and (e) Joseph. are the only children of.tames, the 8011 of Kobe oca. Many of these descendants of these children of.tames are fn Monroe County. (3) Hiram Hanson another child of Rebecca and John Hanson. Given that he was married to a cousin, named Deekard. (4) Sarah is another child of Rebecca, and she also married a Mr. Abrahams. (">) William, another child of Rebecca, and bis birth is, given ns Felt by a descemlent. a Mrs. Ramsey of B1 co-mingten. Tnd.. r>12 South Washington St. This William married a Miss Fallowed, who is the ancestor of this Mrs. Ramsey. Unfortunately many letters asking for records were not answered. (G) Catharine, another child of Rebecca, recorded she married a Mr. Quick. (7) Ambrose, another child of Rebecca, recorded be.also married a Deekard. (5) Melinda, the- last child to record ofil<el>ecca. She married a Mr. Hail and two children are given. James and George Ilall. both, soldiers in the Civil War. 1 had letters from Mr. George Ilall at Heltonville, Ind. (1927). This ends the re cord of Rebecca (Hansom Hanson. The last child of our.john and Mary. Note that we have given the record of OUR John Hanson, the son of a John Hanson, and wife, of which we know nothing, only the,one line or so as given by James Hanson the son of Conrad, in making his record in 187G. This you will find at the beginning of this record..as stated, this James men tioned that there were seven sons, (nc daughters meritoined) and that all were in the Revolutionary War. James mentions these1 Roys as follows: William. Samuel. John (ours) and James and we have added a Joseph. JOSEPH I IAN SOX. another son. the fifth of John Hanson Sr., and a brother to cur John, has a descendant now (1927» living in Lewisburg, West Va. in Green brier County. This sounds familiar, as James Hanson mentions this as the or iginal home of John Sr. and the place of birth of our John Jr. the Revolutionary war soldier. Unfortunately this desc-endent and all others connected with this family in Greenbrier county, refused tc give any further Hanson records, unless the same paid for. This of course is out of the question, and gives one an idea, of what you run up against in trying to gather family records for the benefit of all. Will say here that I paid out money to County officials for examiriatcr of County records, but no name of Han<on in any way., shape or forr to be found. I also had examined several adjoining counties, and then to Augusta the oldest County seat, in western Va.. but not a single item of record. I am more inclined than ever to believe in Southwestern Pa. and the extreme northern part of West Virginia is the place to look, which 1 am now doing. This ends this brief record of our Hanson family, and 1 leave it to others to add to it. I stand ready at all times to assist iu any way I can. Thanking these who have helped, and especially Raymond C. Hanson of Saxman, Kansas who so kindly gave me access to what he had compiled. Very Respectfully Homer Filer, Topeka, Kansas. Dec.,
